In this sense, sustainable supply chain is concerned about incorporating sustainability principles in different stages of supply chains from extracting raw materials to delivering the final products to customers and back. This stream provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share recent advances in applications of OR in Sustainable Supply Chain. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Sustainable strategies in supply chain management
  • Modelling   Simulation for sustainable supply chain analysis
